Florida Woman Who Hit Gunman With Purse Puts Purse on eBay


Earlier this week, a gunman held a school board in Florida hostage before taking his own life in a shoot-out. (Nobody else was injured.) In the midst of the scary situation, middle-aged woman Ginger Littleton risked her own life in an attempt to save the other board members, sneaking back into the hostage situation to hit the gunman with a faux-snakeskin purse. Today, CNN reports that Littleton put the purse on eBay, raising $1,225 to benefit Salvage Santa, a program run by Mike Jones, the security officer involved in the school board shoot-out. “I thought, wow, what closure for everyone,” Littleton explained. “I wasn’t terribly attached to that purse.” [CNN]
